PM&R faculty publish article in Journal of Biomedical Informatics

Biomedical InformaticsA team of researchers including faculty from the department of PM&R, College of Business, and Vidant Health teamed up to utilize machine learning and predictive analytics to determine which patients are at risk for returning to the hospital after admission to acute inpatient rehabilitation.  It is hoped that this will allow targeted interventions for patients who are at high risk for return to acute in the future.

The article is titled "Predicting the risk of acute care readmissions among rehabilitation inpatients: A machine learning approach."
